LA Times H&G 07.12.07 "His look? Totally Rad"

Jul 13, 2007

"English Dandy collides with California Skater." That's how the feature article in yesterday's LA Times House & Garden section describes the Hancock Park home of Johnson Hartig, one half of the design team that create the fashion line Libertine (which debuts it's line for Target this weekend).

Hartig renovated a 1920's country cottage style house. He says "I wanted to turn it into a simple loft-like space- white, clean and open- then decorate it with art as the focus." And it's his eclectic art and antiques that really make the space unique. A big fan of Damien Hirst, he has several Hirst pieces as dominant focal points throughout the space. We especially love his sense of humor that is injected in every room. (Note the champagne bottle above the tub.)
